Here’s a lil FYI for ya! If you mad be mad cuz it might add an additional two years to your life!

A new study published in the Health Psychologies journal by a team of German researchers shows that people who release their anger live an average of two years longer than those who hold their tempers in.

The study followed 6,000 people, primarily Italians and Spanish folks and found that “repressors,” the patients who internalized their emotion, often experienced an elevated pulse which increases the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease and other medical problems.

In findings published in the journal Health Psychologies, the analysis of 6,000 patients showed those who internalized anxiety ran the risk of an elevated pulse — increasing the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease and other ailments.

On a positive note, repressors were found to recover from illness more quickly — likely due to their discipline.
